Painting Dash Body Color

Hey Everyone,

I have been talking with my body/paint guy (my '67 is currently with him) and he brought up the painting of the interior. On my last '67 I did a black interior and was making it look original but he asked about if I would be interested in having all of the painted surfaces the color of the body (2018 Acura Blue). I am trying to get my head around how it would look, especially with the dash being body color but the dash pad being the color of the interior (Black or Saddle).

Has anyone out there done this? I would love to see some pictures.

Thanks!

IMHO no. I think you'll get tired of it real fast. You might mix some blue into
a saddle theme but all blue, nope.

I prefer my dash to match the interior door color.

Re: Painting Dash Body Color

I'd like to see some pics of cars that have the interior painted same as exterior too. I have never seen it done. How hard would it be to re paint it if you didn't like it?
